My Book Boyfriend for December: Adam Kent


So this week I read Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, and the beautiful boy in this book is Adam Kent, the guy who currently has his arms wrapped around my heart. Kent has gone to extreme lengths to seek out the girl he thought he lost a long time ago and is willing to do whatever it takes to break her out of the hell she finds herself trapped in now. He sees the MC for everything she is and loves her deeply. You couldn't ask for a better boyfriend, fictional or otherwise!

Adam Kent
  • "Blue blue blue" eyes
  • missing eyebrow ring
  • dark brown hair
  • sharp jawline
  • strong, lean frame
  • is a solider
  • has a tattoo across his chest
  • has a younger brother
He laughs again, this time a hard, heavy sort of laugh. He's staring at a point directly past my shoulder. "You never asked for anything from anyone." He finally meets my eyes. "But no one ever gave you a chance."
I swallow hard, try to look away but he catches my face.
He whispers, "You have no idea how much I've thought about you. How many times I've dreamt" - he takes a tight breath - "how many times I've dreamt about being this close to you." He moves to run a hand through his hair before he changes his mind. Looks down. Looks up. "God, Juliette, I'd follow you anywhere. You're the only good thing left in this world."
- Shatter Me
I couldn't find the exact guy I'd found in my head, but I thought Jeremy Sumpter, in this shot, was a pretty close pick.

My Book Boyfriend is hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader, and it's a weekly meme in which you choose a fictional boy that makes your heart all gooey and write up a post for him. For more information, check out the introduction post. For sign ups and Missie's choice this week click here.

What fictional male can't you live without this week?

Wow what a swoon worthy quote! I was totally pulled in! I haven't read the book but I have been dying too!

Check Out My Book Boyfriend!

ADAM I LOVE YOU!!!! Was that too much creepy enthusiasm for a fictional character? Maybe:) I can't wait to read more of him in the next book, fantastic book boyfriend this week Asher!

Oh, even though I kind of fell for the bad guy in this story (I know, I know, how could I?), there were some great scenes between Adam and Juliette. I enjoyed all their moments together... and this guy knows what to say to make you love him ;))

Happy midnight reading!

Oh, Adam! I want an Adam! The scenes between him and Juliette were AWESOME. And I loved how he cared for his little brother! So adorable.

I loved this book! Adam was a fabulous hero and I can't wait to read more about him and Juliette. Love the picture and quote you chose as well!

Missie said...

Asher! What are you doing to me? I'm now kicking myself for not having read Shatter Me yet. I've heard amazing things about the book, but now I need to read it so I can meet Adam!

Oh, and also, I am re-reading The Scorpio Races this week. <3 Although I read it only a few weeks ago (A) But, well, I cannot live without Sean. He is awesome :)

Mimi Valentine said...

OH MY GOSH, ASHER!!! I seriously want to hug you right now -- I LOVE ADAM!! :) <3 And maybe there isn't a male model on earth who can live up to a girl's fantasy book boy, but I agree with you 100% when you say that this guy comes pretty close! ;)

You definitely know how to pick them, Asher!! :)

I never managed to finish this one (because of dead-lines, not that it was bad!) but I'm sure I'd agree with you! Lol, I almost do already. ;) Can't wait to get back to it!

Sarah (saz101) said...

Uuuh... I think you might have to share him :P
Oh my goodness, I <3 that photo!

Also! I think our cats are twins! But maybe yours is the good one, because mine is TOTALLY evil. I loves her anyway--it makes her enormously entertaining XD

My copy of Shatter Me arrived yesterday at our local bookstore, and I'm about to pick up the book today! Yay yay! That boy sounds like a swoon-worthy one.. I can't wait to meet him!

Laura (All of Everything) said...

Uhhh I think he looks pretty good to me ^_^ Adam was definitely a very swoonworthy character!

Ashley @ Book Labyrinth said...

Niceeeee choice. Love Adam!

Jenny N. said...

I really need to read Shatter Me since everyone's been telling me how great it is.

prangon said...

Hook. Line. Sinker. Love the scene. Must own. XD

Andrea @The Bookish Babes said...

Love Shatter Me!! He's not exactly how I pictured Adam, but very nice. I've actually seen a Team Adam button, but can't remember where. I need to find that....*ponders*

Princezn√° said...

Oooooh I love(!!!) Adam. If he was real I would probably try to steal him from Juliette (although I'm not really that kind of person). From the moment I found out the truth about him I fell in love with him. And the description of him from Juliette is perfect.
Great pick :)
